Experts say city centre living could be making a comeback, with buyer demand for flats increasing by 39% since January, according to a property website.
Rightmove says the city’s property market pandemic boom continues as buyer demand for Sheffield city centre flats in April was 51% above pre-pandemic levels.
Luke Williams, local property expert for Sheffield at Purplebricks, said: “With restrictions easing, we’re starting to see a lot of people looking to return to city centre living and all the convenience that it brings.
"As bars and restaurants reopen, we’re seeing an increase in inquiries about flats and apartments. People are starting to go back to the office, even for a couple of days a week, and the convenience of living close to where you work is very appealing.”
